Twas the Text Before Christmas (2023)

Movie Summary

Originally titled Christmas by Chance.

New York City chiropractor Addie mistakenly receives a text from “Nana.” The accidental text turns into a loving friendship between the matronly Nana and Addie who now communicate regularly. Nana invites Addie to spend the holiday in Vermont. It is picture-postcard perfect and exactly as Nana described except for one surprise. Nana’s single son James, a traveling doctor, is also home for the holidays. Over three consecutive years, James and Addie are together during the holidays, though it isn’t until they are both single that they begin to see each other in a different light.

Twas the Text Before Christmas originally premiered on the Great American Family Channel October 21, 2023.

    Would love the complete cast list please. We’re especially interested Addie’s father. Thank you!

  • Loved the sweet down home Christmas movie.
    Have grown children around Addie and James age Like his mom in the movie, we all want our children to find love with that special someone. Loved the facial expressions everyone made in the movie. I wanted them to stay in the charming little town.
    I always enjoy watching a Hallmark Crristmas movie.
